Just weeks after the Azzurri won the 2020 European Championship, Italian soccer is again at the forefront as the Serie A schedule was revealed today, making betting odds to win Italy's top domestic club league for the 2021-22 season a hot topic.
Despite winning the title in 2020-21, Internazionale is not the club with the best Serie A betting odds. Instead, it's the club with almost 20 more Italian league titles than every other club.
With the season set to kick off on August 22, here is the early look at the odds to win Serie A in 2021-22.

Favorite to win the Serie A
No club has won more Serie A titles than Juventus' 36, and the early betting odds have I Bianconeri as the early betting favorites at +115. Juventus had won nine straight league titles entering last season but finished a disappointing fourth in the league table last year — and are banking on a big rebound. The look of the roster may be very different come Matchday 1, however, as Juventus is at the center of some major transfer window moves.
Internazionale easily cruised to the Serie A title last year, finishing 12 points clear of AC Milan with 91 on the season, and sits second on the odds board at +225. Led by superstar striker Romelu Lukaku, Inter Milan should again be a force in the Serie A all season long.
There's a big gap between the top two clubs on the odds board and everyone else.
AC Milan is third at +1,100 but lost midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu (to Internazionale) and superstar goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma (to Paris Saint-Germain), while the Top 5 is rounded out by Atalanta (third in Serie A last season) and Napoli (fifth in 2020-21) at +1,300.
Past Serie A champions
Last season, Internazionale won their 19th Serie A title and ended Juventus' latest reign of dominance. Here are the previous Serie A champions over the last ten years:

Understanding Serie A betting odds
Serie A futures odds are constantly adjusted throughout the offseason due to player transfers and injuries. Once the season begins, title odds will change as teams win and lose games and as more players get hurt or suspended. Sportsbooks will also adjust Serie A odds based on handle and liability to certain teams.
Serie A futures odds will usually look like this:
- Juventus +350
This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $350 if Juventus wins the Coppa Campioni d'Italia. If it's close to the end of the competition, or a club has been particularly dominant, you might see them with a minus sign (-) ahead of their odds.
- Internazionale -500
This means that you would need to bet $500 to win just $100 on an Internazionale championship.
